Anyone who visited Brisbane’s CBD over the weekend are at risk of catching measles and should check themselves for symptoms.
Metro North Public Health Unit has issued a measles alert for anyone who was in the CBD between March 29 and 31 after an infectious person visited the area.
People who visited Sake restaurant on Eagle St, The Stock Exchange Hotel on Edward St, or Pancake Manor on Charlotte St, should be especially vigilant.
The infectious person also travelled on 306 or 322 bus routes on those dates.
Dr Catherine Quagliotto says people with symptoms of measles – which include fever, cough, runny nose, sore eyes and a red spotty rash – are urged to contact their GP to make an appointment.
She said people should inform the practice that you may have measles when making an appointment.
Dr Quagliotto said the recent case was linked to another contracted overseas.
A third related case has also been confirmed and the infectious person travelled through Beaudesert and into NSW.
